Electrosoft, an award-winning IT and professional services firm specializing in cybersecurity, announced that it has published its “The Move to Zero Trust” podcast, the second in a series of podcasts addressing the most pressing cybersecurity concerns for federal government.
Featuring Electrosoft founder and CEO, Dr. Sarbari Gupta, and security analyst, Diana Proud-Madruga, the podcast answers the question, “What is Zero Trust and why does it matter?”
In the podcast, the cybersecurity experts address:
“People working from home generally have a different mindset than when they work in the office,” explained Gupta. “They are more likely to fall for scams such as phishing attacks.”
Zero Trust refers to a network security posture that distrusts any remote entity that attempts to access a database or service. In a Zero Trust model, every remote entity must establish their identity as well as their privilege to access that database or service before access is granted.
“Just because you have access to the network, it does not give you access to every person and asset on the network,” added Proud-Madruga. “You still have to go through continuous authentication, continuous re-identification and verification.”
